On the 15th December 2015 - Global workspace provider, Regus announced plans to open its first location in Ashford, reflecting the strong demand for flexible, cost-effective workspace in the area.
The centre, which will be located in landmark building The Panorama, will open for business in 2016. It will offer a range of flexible working options for businesses and professionals including bookable meeting rooms, a drop-in business lounge, office space and virtual office services.
Thanks to its unrivaled transport links with London, Paris, Lille and Brussels all just a short train journey away, Ashford is fast establishing itself as an ideal location to conduct international business.
Regus expects the facility to attract a wide variety of users including local, national and international businesses, and business travellers looking for a convenient, professional place to work when on the move.
Demand for flexible workspace is growing steadily, as businesses aim to save money on lengthy leases and give employees greater freedom in where and when they work.
Research from Regus shows that 40% of UK workers spend at least 2.5 days per week working outside of their main office. Similarly, a third of UK employers are offering their staff more flexible working options.
Technology makes it possible to ‘work anywhere’, yet most people prefer an office-style environment to remain productive, motivated and disciplined.
Richard Morris, UK CEO, Regus, comments:
We are excited to be establishing a presence in Ashford, which is building a reputation as a thriving international town and is widely recognized as one of Kent’s most attractive business locations.
